Drive D is not formated!Chkdsk not working !

June 13, 2010 at 14:02:58
Specs: Windows XP, 3.0ghz/2gb DDR2
This morning my computer worked fine . When i started it this evening and tried to access Partition D: it said : "Drive D is not formated. Do you want to format it now?"
I tried 5 recovery programs and no result.
The chkdsk is not working on that partition and many other problems.
I have there all my files of a commercial game project that are priceless and i really don't want to loose them.
Please if anybody knows what i cand do or can suggest me what to do just tell me because im desperate :(( .

What does Disk Management show?

Do you have backups of your data?

I do not have any backup (but i think i will make backups from now) and it says that its not formated ( that it does not have an file system)but when i check it with a recovery program it says that it is formated in NTFS and shows me the free and ocuped space and the folders that are in it but i cant copy or save them.
It also says that the partition is inactive and i cant set it as active.

Try using testdisk to fix the partition. Be sure to read the tutorials thoroughly before attempting to use it. Get it at the link below.

If that fails. you could try putting the drive into another computer as a second drive and seeing if you can access the partition there, If so, make your back up.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

Johnw has another point, try running Malwarebytes.

"TestDisk,PartitionMagic,PartitionTableDoctor,EasusPartitionMaster and Pc Inspector File Recovery"

Nice homework, they are all good choices.

If TestDisk dos'nt give a result, I would lean towards infection.
You may have to use Safe mode.

Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:

At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.

Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.

Hi there,

I suggest you to remove the hardrive and connect it to other computer as usb drive and see whats the result. If you still cant access your d drive then its better to run some data recovery softwares like power data recovery , R-studio etc.
If un-successful then visit any local computer shop they will help you to get data back.

In my first lesson regarding computers back in 98 teacher told me to always keep taking backup.


Best of luck

If a hard drive is accessible while connected internally what purpose would connecting that drive using a USB adapter serve?

The hard drive is being configured. The partition information is corrupted.
